Ubiquitous Post-it Note Goes Sustainable

post-it-note2Post-it Notes, the sticky pads on everyone’s desks and refrigerators, have been certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI).

The 3M product has received SFI’s Chain-of-custody Certification for all Post-it Note and Post-it Easel products to be sold in the United States, according to a press release.

The certification indicates that 3M has a tracking system to identify the amount of certified, uncertified and recycled content in the Post-It products.

SFI has certified more than 160 million acres of forests across North America, according to the release. Its standards are based on principles and measures including protecting water quality, biodiversity, wildlife habitat, species at risk and forests with conservation value.

Earlier this year, 3M formed a renewable energy division.

One thought on “Ubiquitous Post-it Note Goes Sustainable

  1. I am heartened to hear that 3M is going sustainable. This is a big step towards positive change. So many people use these products all the time, I am hoping that there is also a recycling incentive to reduce those little bits of paper being thrown right back into the garbage can. Otherwise this would only be the tip of the iceburg, so to speak.
